Youth Village: Weekend Fun for Outdoor Conservation


Connect to the Outdoors and a Future in Conservation

The 2023 National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic will once again host the popular Youth Village this year, sponsored by Sportsman’s Guide. This fun-filled weekend event will take place February 17-19, 2023 in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the Minneapolis convention center.

Youth Village helps connect kids to nature and the uplands through a variety of hands-on activities and learning stations. Activities this year will feature all-time favorites such as an indoor BB gun range, coloring stations, fly tying, decoy carving and more! Along with new activities like face painting!
